Forum: faqs Subject: Changing collections again

Hello all,

I'm really sorry but i can't find out how to change the collection for example from opensource_audio to radio programs for this item (for example)
http://www.archive.org/details/age_dor_musique_ethiopienne_1

It's not clear for me if it's only available after sometimes or if i have done something wrong. I also thought i could find it as an entry in the FAQ but i don't. Can anybody help ?

LPG

Same thing happened to me - very frustrating... it seems that once an item has been created as part of 'opensource_audio' it remains in that collection for good.

One workaround is to tag the itm with an additional collection field: go to 'edit item', scroll down to the bottom of the Metadata editor page and click on 'Add another field' (right next to the Submit button). In the left-hand text box type "collection" (without quotes) and in the right-hand box type the name of the collection you actually want the item to belong to.

Once saved (and updated) you'll see th.at your item displays the following:
This audio is part of the collection: Open Source Audio
It also belongs to collection: ...*your collection*...

The item will be displayed in any searches based on your collection name (i.e. "Browse Collection" from your netlabel's main page) although unfortunately the item won't display the netlabel's logo (in the top right hand of the page) because its primary collection is still 'opensource_audio'. Grrr...

Hope this helps.
